We got a large package in the mail from our adoption agency today. It was a copy of our completed dossier. I was unfamiliar with the word "dossier" before we started this process, so here's the definition.
dos-si-er : (dos-ee-ey, -ee-er, daw-see-ey, -see-er; Fr. daw-syey) noun, plural dos⋅si⋅ers
a collection or file of documents on the same subject, esp. a complete file containing detailed information about a person or topic.
We found out the our dossier was sent to our agency's National office yesterday. From there it will go to the Embassy in DC where it will be legalized. It will then shipped to Ethiopia where it will be translated and sent to MOWA (Ministery of Women's Affairs) and the various orphanages that our agency works with to await a referral. We are at a point where we won't hear much information from our agency. It's just a waiting game now. Thanks again for all your prayers.
